Plans showing how Melville Housing Association intends to bring the Dalkeith Corn Exchange back to life have gone on public display at the town’s library.

A planning application for the Grade A listed building has been submitted for approval to Midlothian Council with a decision expected later this year.

The refurbished building, which has been vacant for many years, could see new offices for Melville as well as a new Dalkeith Museum that would be managed by the Dalkeith History Society.

Bob Anderson, Melville Housing Association Chairman, said: “We’re delighted to exhibit our plans for the Corn Exchange.

“The building has a long history of community use and is close to the hearts of many local people, especially those who have happy memories of when it was the Empress Ballroom in the 1940s and 50s.”
